Assembling your Invitations:

When enclosure cards of the same size are used, the card that is most important for your guest to see would be placed closest to the invitation.
- Reply envelop
- Reply card (tucked under reply envelope flap)
- Reception card
If using two envelopes, the inner is unsealed and inserted into the outer envelope so the guest’s name is the first thing seen as the outer envelope is opened. Have one complete invitation weighed for correct postage. Choose beautiful commemorative stamps.
